We hired snow gear from here as it was conveniently located directly across the road from the Vibe hotel where we were staying. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. There were alot of customers in the store when we were there, but things were kept moving well as people were assisted through the process (ordering what you need, fitted out for clothing, boots, selecting toboggans, car chains etc). There was even an in-store video tutorial on how to fit the chains and a step by step instruction sheet provided. Reasonably priced, cheaper (and quicker) than hiring gear on the mountain. Easy returns process and open until 6pm. We'll definitely be back for our next snow adventure!

It was a bit of a drama today with the road to Lake Mountain being closed for several hours due to an overnight storm and massive trees blocking the road. We hired all of our gear for a family of five late afternoon the day before from Cross Country Ski Hire hoping for an early start the next day but but due to overnight storm some massive trees came down blocking the road for several hours.

Greg & Lianne and their excellent staff were very kind in letting us have all the hire gear for the following day without charge. This was an unexpected very kind offer so thanks for that and keep up the great PR.

I hired snow gear here during a long weekend and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Having never hired snow gear I didn’t really know what I needed and wasn’t sure what to expect but the service I got was fantastic. It’s so organised and way more affordable than hiring on the mountain. There is even a seperate gear drop off point at the rear which is handy when you are tired at the end of the day and want to get home quickly. Highly recommend!

Last year we hired gear from another place near this one, but they didn't have chains that fit our car, so we had to duck into this one for chains. My husband noticed then that they seemed to be much better organised and so we went there first up this year. Very impressed by the efficiency of their operation, good queue management, helpful staff, pretty straightforward to get in and out (even with six kids in our group!), and gear was great. Much better value than on Lake Mountain, and easy returns process. Highly recommend!

Needed snow gear on the way to Lake Mountain on the weekend and gave these guys a try. They were brilliant. So organised, well stocked with quality gear for the whole family. Reasonably priced and able to pass on valuable information about Lake Mountain.
Quick and simple process to hire.

Greg from Cross Country Ski Hire could not have been more helpful for my nephews first time ever snow experience. We have never had to encounter putting snow chains on our wheels but Greg was a brilliant instructor. Greg assisted in kitting us out with tobogans, snowsuits, boots and gloves for fantastic prize and memories we will have forever. We will be using Cross Country again in the future years we go back to Lake Mountain and would recommend them to anyone....say Hi to Greg for us if you do....

The staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Great prices and availability. Returns were easy and convenient. Don't hire on the mountain, get everything you need here, plus the returns are due in by 6pm (unlike the mountain which is 4pm) so you don't have to rush around.

I've been coming here for years, pre and post fires. The staff are brilliant and really know their stuff. They can just look at a teenager and quickly size them up for XC ski gear.
Prices are competitive and excellent for large groups such as church groups, school groups and clubs.
If you've got little kids, they cater very well for them as well.
You can hire toboggans, overgear, chains - everything from the one place.
They have a clever system in place for pick ups and returns at the end of the day when it can be really busy. That efficiency in time is precious for those of us who want to get up to the snow ASAP. Go to their website to see how things work.
There is plenty of parking out the front.
Will always return.

We've just come back from a few days spent in Marysville, to give the kids their first snow experience on Lake Mountain. Just wanted to give a mention to the crew at Cross Country Ski Hire. They were super nice and really helpful with getting our snow gear and toboggans organised (even with 6 kids under 8 running around their shop!). They also gave us some fantastic advice on when to get up to the mountain etc (to beat crowds and get best snow). Also, gave us good tips on places to eat locally. We will definitely use them again when we go. The hire gear was way better than I expected. Very new, very clean and in excellent condition. The prices for beanies and gloves etc were very good too - there was no need for me to have run around town trying to organise them before we left, I could've just got them there. We were able to get tobogganing as soon we reached the mountain because we had everything with us - which is definitely the way to go.

Really nice staff which is better than cheap prices (which they also have). $7 for kids boots and $20 for their top of the line toboggan, and a great range of clothes/equipment to hire or buy. Not sure how the prices stack up against the competition but I'll come back here next time anyway!
